OK, here we go with my first post on this forum. I have been hopping for a sub Macbook from Apple for years. Yes, now we have the Air. But it is not quite what I had hoped. Yes, the supper slim design was atractive, but it really looks like a toy, not a tool. But some of the Air's design philosophy is quite interesting. To me, the optical drive is not necessary, since I don't even remember when was the last time I used the DVD drive on the PowerBook. So, what about a MacBook Pro without the Optical Drive, keeping everything there are on the 15-inch model. At the same thickness, 1", it should be possible to pack a 13" display with even smaller footprint, say roughly the A4 size. Of course, it could share the DVD drive for the Air if one requires. So what do you think?
